Boxing legend Frank Bruno being lined up as a guest on BBC's Question Time

BOXING legend Frank Bruno is being lined up for telly’s Question Time.

The BBC approached the former world champion and he is “weighing up” the offer as he does not usually appear on live shows.

Frank, 59, who is bipolar, has been a campaigner on mental health since retiring in 1996.

A source said: “Frank’s flattered to be asked. He has strong views on what is going on in the world.

“He is also not at all woke, so he might be quite a lively guest – which I am sure is what the BBC want.

“But his team are a bit worried he might be a touch too blunt and forthright.”

Bosses at Question Time – which is screened on BBC1 on Thursday nights – last year angrily denied that ratings were plummeting.

It was claimed one episode of the show last October, which switched to a virtual audience at the start of the pandemic, had attracted just 620,000 viewers.

The BBC declined to comment.
